Accident of the Week – TWA 800
I’ve decided to post links to at least one accident or near-miss each week.
Each will have a lesson learned or a important fact for incident investigators and root cause analysts.
This week I am posting a link to the CNN web site of the TWA 800 accident.
Also, here is a link to the NTSB investigation web site:
What can you learn from this incident? You can’t believe everything you see.
Eye witnesses said they say a missile that shot down the plane. But a fuel tank explosion is much more likely.
Look forward to future postings. Some will be major accidents. Others will be smaller incidents. Some may even be near-misses that we can learn from.
And if you have any interesting accident footage, e-mail it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
